On December 6, 2018, His Grace Bishop NICHOLAS, visited St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church in St. Petersburg, FL to celebrate our patronal feast, St. Nicholas Feast Day. As part of his desire to get to know the parishes in his Diocese of Miami and the Southeast, he met individually with the Parish Council, the Men’s Group, the Ladies Society, the Teens, the Young Adults, and the Sunday School teachers and children.

For each group and organization, he challenged us to acquire the attributes of God: patience, humility, love, kindness, and compassion for others, through daily prayer and attending worship services. He reminded us of Christ’s commandment to love God with our whole being and our neighbor as ourselves. He was particularly focused on each one of us taking seriously being a part of the body of Christ by getting to know each other better as we travel the path of holiness.
